BASKERVILLE – A Sherlock Holmes Mystery

Book now for this year’s much anticipated Chevalier College theatre production – sure to delight young and older.



Get your deerstalker cap on — the play’s afoot!

From the award-winning mastermind of mayhem, Ken Ludwig, comes a fast-paced comedy about everyone’s favourite detective solving his most notorious case. 

Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson must crack the mystery of “The Hound of the Baskervilles”.

Sir Charles Baskerville, a wealthy Devonshire landowner, dies under mysterious circumstances, and Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson are on the case.  Enter Sir Henry Baskerville, heir apparent to the Baskerville fortune.  Holmes and Watson set off to the Devonshire estate to figure out who killed Sir Charles, and so Sir Henry can claim his fortune.

Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can our heroes discover the truth in time? Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be.
